Inspired by the amazing Saguaro cactus found in the desert of Arizona.
The design process began by sketching the cactus on a piece of drawing paper, then transferring the drawing to a large piece of white cotton fabric. The entire piece is hand painted with fabric paint. The cactus are not appliqued, they were painted in place and then thread painted to achieve the texture. The piece was quilted on a domestic sewing machine.
